GAK middle part

A new generation, a new way of living

The centre part of the building is the last chapter of the transformation of the whole GAK building. Zecc designed the architectural interior of the North wing lower levels, where the restaurant is situated. At the moment Zecc Architecten is working on a new plan for the midsection of the building together with Wessel de Jonge Architects. They will focus mainly on the façades and Zecc on the inner structure and apartments.

The target group will be young city dwellers, just like in the previous phases of the project. On the ground floor there will be a spatial lobby that connects to the park in front of the building. This is seen as a central meeting place for the residents. On the top floors two-storey apartments are designed, each with their own roof terraces. There is a broad variety of apartments that matches the diverse need of young people living in Amsterdam. 

The core of the building is opened up in a way that daylight can enter deep inside the building. It also provides a visual connection between the apartments, which increases the spacious impression and stimulate the social interaction. In the basement there is a large bicycle parking, as most of the young people don’t own a car, but a bike. Approximately 350 bikes can be stalled in the basement, which will have a direct spatial and physical link the main lobby.
